Sundays with Hope
Are you curious about faith? Looking for a church to call home?
We’d love to meet you.
If you’d like to chat beforehand, either virtually or in person, just let us know.
(1st and 3rd sundays)
We gather to worship and encounter God through stories, an inspirational talk from the Bible, a time of music and creativity, and in prayer for each other.
(We meet at Templars Square: Unit 4, The Square, OX4 3XD, and these services are also Livestreamed online)
Refreshments from 10:00am (10:30 start) – Downstairs
Coffee and light snacks available from 10am. At 10:30am, the service starts and after updates and reflections on recent events, there’s a talk. It’s purpose is to bring life from the Bible, share experiences, and apply the teachings of Jesus to our everyday lives.
Following the talk, we have a time of worship together, led by musicians and other creatives, and we make space for those that want to receive personal prayer at the end.
Hope Kids (children + carer/s) – Upstairs
Children (age 5-11) get the chance to engage with stories and a whole range of activities and games centered around an inspiring Bible theme.
We’d suggest booking kids in by 10:15am, and depending on numbers, we may ask one of their parents/carers to accompany their children. (Unfortunately our current venue requires kids/carers to be able to get upstairs, and there is no disabled access)
Youth on Week 3 – Upstairs
We might be small but we are passionate about young people and engaging them in exploring and practicing the way Jesus lived. In 2020 we started a new gathering for young people, year 6 to 9, and there is potential for older youth to be able to help out. We want to create a safe place where questions about God and life are encouraged. There’ll also be lots of fun (as that’s important!) and we want to engage young people in shaping these gatherings and making them a highlight, something they’d want to invite their friends to.
If you, like us, love young people we’d love to hear from you as we look to develop a team. (Text 07971828408 or complete the ‘make a difference’ form)

Sunday Breakfast at 10am
(2ND and 4th sundays)
(This is in person at Templars Square: Unit 4, The Square, OX4 3XD)
Jesus invited everyone to the table. He spent a lot of time eating, drinking, inspiring and challenging those he met to live out a purposeful and loving life.
Whatever your background or experience of any faith, we hope these conversations are open, and will inspire us all.
The invitation is open to anyone, whatever your perspective on God and faith, you’re welcome at the table.
Start time: 10:00am – Downstairs
At 10:00am doors open and we serve breakfast until 10:30am.
Soon afterwards, we introduce the theme for the morning with a short story.
Children under the age of 11 along with their parents/guardians are then invited to get involved in either crafts, or active games, which explore God’s big story for the world and our lives. (Upstairs)
During this time, the rest of their adults have the opportunity to continue conversations on tables and we respond to questions on the theme, learning from each other’s life experience. (Downstairs)
